Not often you find a Donald Ross municipal golf course! I actually really liked the layout of this course. Just an FYI, it is a city course so not very well taken care of. Fairways are beaten up. The greens were actually quite good. Certainly worth playing if you're in town. $55 with a cart for non-residents. Not sure I'd... More

Well, George Wright is not technically part of Frederick Law Olmstead's linked green city parks established in the late nineteenth century, as is its sister course at Franklin Park. But it certainly continues the linkage of green parks found within city limits. The old Donald Ross course is a beaut, and significantly upgraded since the one review (below) written six... More

Recently played both of the Boston City courses and as an avid golfer who has played many of the top courses in the country, I was impressed with this "Muni" course. Its 6500 Yards Par 70, which means realistically for a Par 72 many are used to you are talking playing in the 6800 range, so there is enough there... More

This is a track with some potential, although it is not up to the master's usual design standards. Donald Ross would roll over in his grave if he could see the shape this course is in. Years of neglect (some of it not so "benign" apparently) has left portions of this course almost unplayable. Sure, the stonework is beautiful and... More
